* Added tooltips to editor document overview bar to show code at marks.
* Added new option to support partial page movement for PageUp and PageDown to move a percentage of a full page
* Moved ISPF option for PageUp and PageDown to move the cursor to the top of the page to general Cursor Movement options
* Added new Smart Page option for PageUp and PageDown to try to align to symbol or paragraph boundaries   
* Outlining
       
* The following outline styles are available: Indent, Braces, Braces or brackets, Symbols (Pro Only-supports most languages), and Statements (Pro Only- supports many languages). The Indent style is typically a great alternative to the Statements outline style.
* When using an outline style, selective-display is updated continuously.
* Selective-display lines for each indentation level are now aligned vertically with the code block.
* New mouse-over information for selective display indicator lines shows what statement block the line corresponds to.
* New mouse-over information for block statements shows where find-matching-paren could move the cursor to.   
* Language Support
       
* Rust Enhancements
* Beautifier       
* Scala Enhancements
* Updated Scala debugger backend to improve performance and breakpoint handling.   
* Project Support
       
* Build Error FixUps
               
* Added support for defining "FixUps", error expressions that trigger macros for fixing build errors automatically.
* Implemented fix-up for adding a missing semicolon to the end of a line.
* Implemented fix-up for adding an import or include for an identifier the compiler could not find.
* Implemented fix-up for replacing a misspelled identifier.
* Implemented fix-up for adding a missing comma.
* Implemented fix-up for converting '->' to '.' and vice-versa.               
* Find and Replace
       
* The find-matching-paren (Ctrl+]) command now supports tracing through compound <code>if ... else if ... else ... </code> and <code>try ... catch ... finally ... </code> statement sequences in brace-oriented languages like C and Java.
* The find-matching-paren (Ctrl+]) command now supports tracing through <code>switch ... { case ... default ... }</code> statement sequences in brace-oriented languages like C and Java.   
* Syntax Expansion
       
* Added new "ifelse" syntax expansion trigger to expand an <code>if ... else</code> statement for most languages.
* Added new syntax expansion option to prioritize common statements to avoid prompting for which keyword to expand when there are multiple matches.
* Dynamic Surround redesigned so that it does not use a hard-coded event loop.
* Added options to control what cursor movement keys are taken over by Dynamic Surround.
* Added Horizontal Dynamic Surround mode that is triggered on Auto-Close events (parenthesis, brackets, quotes)
* Added code to trigger Horizontal Dynamic Surround when inline HTML or XML tags are auto-closed.
* Added Auto-Close option to disable Horizontal Dynamic Surround.
* Added Auto-Close option for HTML and XML tags (instead of depending on generic syntax expansion option).   
* Files
       
* Added File>Set File Attributes... menu item which allows you to set file attributes/permissions for the current file. For command line lovers, the chmod command has been enhanced to automatically assume the current buffer if no files are specified. For example, chmod u+x sets user execute permissions for the current file.
* Added color coding for File Manager mode
